Its aggressive toll road expansion drift is what makes Jasa Marga's capital expenditure (capex) budget for 2016 rise to the record high of IDR 13 trillion (approx. USD $977 million). To cover these costs, the firm acquired a loan, plans to issue bonds and is set to receive a capital injection from the government.

In April 2016 state-controlled lenders Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI), Bank Mandiri and Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI) agreed to provide a syndicated loan facility worth IDR 7.7 trillion (approx. USD $580 million) for two sections of the Trans-Java Toll Road project that are built by Jasa Marga.

At the start of June 2016 it was announced that the Indonesian government plans a capital injection of IDR 53.98 trillion (approx. USD $3.9 billion) in total for 24 state-controlled companies this year, including Jasa Marga.

Furthermore, Jasa Marga plans to raise IDR 5 trillion from bonds offered in either the fourth quarter of 2016 or the first quarter of 2017 (also for debt settlement purposes).

Several toll road projects that are currently being developed by Jasa Marga are: Medan-Kuala Namu- Tebing Tinggi, Gempol-Pasuruan, Surabaya-Mojokerto, Semarang-Solo, Cengkareng-Kunciran, Kunciran-Serpong, Solo-Ngawi, and Ngawi-Kertosono. Others that are in the pipeline include Semarang-Batang, Pandaan-Malang, Manado-Bitung, and Balikpapan-Samarinda.
